The Effective Board – (Audit and) Risk Committees

Since the advent of Risk Committees following The Crash, boards haven’t always found it easy to make these things work well.  What gets covered and how can be unclear: there are quite a few fuzzy lines meaning a lot more “about risk” can end up in the Committee’s lap than might be right.  And some careful thinking is needed around attendance and how the committee works – especially the way management report.  So here are a few pointers as to what to think through and possible traps to avoid.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.
